Godspeed to my friend, mentor, and Wingman - CMSgt (ret) Ericka Kelly. Our nation owes you a debt of gratitude it will never be able to repay. On behalf of 107,100 women and men of the Air National Guard, thank you for your leadership and dedication to our great nation and our Airmen.
"Those who fought in Vietnam are part of us, part of our history. They reflected the best in us. No number of wreaths, no amount of music and memorializing will ever do them justice but it is good for us that we honor them and their sacrifice"- former President Ronald Reagan #NationalVietnamWarVeteransday
The priorities are established. The mission is clear. The Airmen are the key ingredient. Can you connect to the bigger picture?
In commemoration of National Medal of Honor Day, I would like to remember Tech. Sgt. John Chapman, and all of the recipients who sacrificed for their team and country. The valor, honor and heroism that they embody provides a legacy of love, bravery and leadership for all service members. United States Air Force l U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)
Updates to the rules surrounding transferring Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits give service members a smaller window to transfer. Be sure to stay on top of the latest changes to these provisions if this is something you are or will be interested in for your family in the future. The Post-9/11 GI Bill and the transfer of benefits are two separate programs, so make sure your benefits and #KnowYourMil.
It feels good to know that the Airmen of the ANG are always ready, always there. Whether confronting threats and disasters foreign or domestic, our great Airmen always step up to the plate to answer the call. Welcome home Airmen of the 127th Wing.
No one understands the importance of putting "the right people in the right places" in order to accomplish greatness, like the Citizen Airmen and Soldiers of The National Guard. The duality of our state and Federal mission is demanding and takes a diverse force with diverse skillsets to get the job done. The members of the 166th Airlift Wing Force Support Squadron, hit the nail on the head in this #IAmTheMission spotlight. Every member, working together, gets the mission done.
The Air National Guard has a proud heritage, rooted in integrity, respect, courage and excellence. I am proud to be a part of that heritage and hold all of my fellow Airmen in the utmost respect, knowing that they operate to the highest standards. Continue to aim high Airmen, so that we can fly, fight and win.
Staff Sgt. Crystal Lopez is assigned to the 142nd Fighter Wing Mission Support Group. She is mobilizing soon, along with over 100 of her wingmen from the unit. Her twin sister attended her mobilization ceremony to stand in solidarity with her and support her service. This is what we mean when we say the Air National Guard is a family business.

Hey 119th Wing North Dakota Air National Guard, way to #GetAfterIt. The Air National Guard Director and I were impressed by the culture and the “can do” attitude of the Airmen - from Security Forces at the gate to the wing leadership it was very evident.
I had a great afternoon with the 152nd Airlift Wing, along with my travel partner, Air National Guard Director, Lt. Gen. Rice. Lt. Gen. Rice. Getting to hear from leadership and Airmen directly is very important to us when making decisions on the future of the Air National Guard.
Thank you 142nd Fighter Wing, Lt Gen. Rice and I are always honored and humbled when we visit wings and hear about the their challenges but more importantly the success our Airmen face everyday. #GetAfterIt
Fantastic trip to the 141st Air Refueling Wing, very honored to talk with the Airmen and recognize a few of their outstanding members.
This past weekend the state of Tennessee experienced significant flood damage. The 118th Wing was on the scene, assisting those affected. This is what Always Ready, Always There, means. These are your National Guard Citizen Airmen. 118th Wing l Tennessee National Guard l The National Guard
The Air National Guard is a family business, and as family businesses go, it can sometimes bear unique and unexpected stressors. Balancing life as a Citizen Airmen is not always easy. From the top down, even General Joseph L. Lengyel, Chief of The National Guard Bureau, has to weigh the demands of the Core Value, "Service before Self". But when you approach it as a family business, taking care of your family along the way, you can find excellence on both sides of citizen service.
The 132d Wing is model unit for deployment readiness and effectiveness, and sets an example for the rest of the Air National Guard. Thank you for showing the Air National Guard Director and I how you get after it.
I would like to send out a huge welcome and congratulations to CMSgt. Timothy White on your selection as the new Command Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force Reserve Command and Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chief of Staff of the AF Reserve.
Back shops are the backbone of our wings. Shout out to the 116th Air Control Wing avionics back shop. Keep up the great work and #GetAfterIt!
